But we stopped accepting Faxes in 2005

What we used to worry about: Nipplegate edition

They were the days!

Do you recall who played in Superbowl 2004? ... George W. Bush was the leader of the war-torn world.. we were still cleaning up wreckage from Ground Zero.. back then we thought Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and yellowcake....



And Janet Jackson, for better or worse, exposed her breast during the Superbowl HalfTime Show with Justin Timberlake.
....the world went wild.
....CBS promised an investigation.
....the FCC fined...
....the world was aghast.

Years later we ponder if THAT was the worst thing that could have happened.

Here is a screen grab of NEWS from the 'day after tomorrow' from the AP courtesy of the WAYBACK machine:





Perhaps my favorite part:

Even halftime producer and CBS corporate Viacom cousin MTV - the network that broadcast Madonna kissing Britney Spears at last August's MTV Awards - was contrite.
"Unrehearsed, unplanned, completely unintentional," said MTV.
Although Timberlake issued a statement shortly after the show apologizing and blaming the debacle on a "wardrobe malfunction," he didn't seem too sorry in comments to the syndicated show "Access Hollywood."
"Hey, man, we love giving you all something to talk about," he said, laughing.
Jackson's official Web site was bombarded with angry postings.

Ridiculous at best.

These were the worries of our times.
Simpler in nature. But somewhat still ancient in philosophy ..

Something things change.. some things don't.
But I wonder today aloud, would a nipple provide as much danger today as it did then? .... Maybe we'll find out this Sunday at the newest TIMBERLAKE Superbowl.

For the first time, we can all begin to understand the systematic cover up by church leaders that followed. The abuse scarred every diocese. The cover up was sophisticated. The church protected the institution at all costs.”
